With a matter of weeks to go until the Tour of Britain departs from George Square in the heart of Glasgow, Tour of Britain organisers are celebrating a fantastic summer of cycling with the official artwork of the 2016 edition of the race.

Renowned cycling artist Will Barras is back with another set of eight spectacular images building on the success of last year’s collection, which reflect the beautiful and varied terrain of the 2016 route all from the perspective of ‘inside the peloton’. 

""

Each of the images is inspired by one of the stages, from the spectacular Welsh mountains to the riders whizzing around London’s Trafalgar Square via a summit finish in Devon and the penultimate stage passing under the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol. Drawn by hand by artist Will Barras, who worked with Peloton Design, the images are being used in the 2016 promotional campaign, and are now also available to buy.

More about the artist
 
Will Barras is an artist, illustrator and animation director living and working in London. He grew up in Birmingham and moved to Bristol to study graphic design. Will became one of a new crop of young artists working within Bristol's world renowned street art scene.
 
This led to Will appearing in 'Scrawl' the book, and becoming a founding member of the Scrawl collective. 'Scrawl' originally published in 1999 was a seminal book documenting a new movement in street art, graphics and illustration. He was chosen as one of the original artists for the collective, noted for his representations of fluid movement, unique narrative driven composition and line work.
